How equipped are the main stream media to fully analyze Pope Francis position on fake news, the Pontiff noted that fake news didn’t start with Trump, rather he traced the rise of fake news to the Garden of Eden, the pope was referring to the accusation that his long time friend was involved in covering up allegation of sex abuse in the church, despite no evidence have been brought forward. The pope statement was taken at the face value by the mainstream media unlike Trump’s tweets that get scrutinized in layers, the statement by Pope should serve as a warning to journalists who have risen against the standards and principles of real journalism, but some news network such as CNN, ABC couldn’t even bring their brightest minds to analysis this, which implies, how bright are their ‘brightest minds’? And is it fair for them to cover the pope without understanding the core values of the Catholic tradition such as the scriptures and canonical books?
